AMD Gaming PC Step 8: Sight and Sound

Acer G7 Series 21.5” LED IPS Monitor
Sony HCD-C450 Home Theater Dream System

I wanted to get a good 1080p monitor that didn’t take up too much space on my desktop and didn't cost me an arm and a leg. The Acer G7 21.5” fit within my budget. I liked the near zero bezel on it. It looks pretty sleek. The screen is is bright. The 1920×1080 resolution works well for me. I may grab another one later on and do a multi-monitor Eyefinity setup.

I was recently moving stuff and noticed I had a Sony Home Theater Dream system in storage. I figured that I could use it with my gaming PC for Dolby 5.1 surround sound. I easily hooked it up to my PC using an optical cable to the optical output on my Sapphire Pure Black 990FX motherboard.

Gaming never looked and sounded so good!

    Those Sony Dream systems come in handy once in a while for sure.
